Excited to see The Sadies bump.
Hope to hear some Rat Fink.

Get well soon Matt.
We're feeling a little like Bobby Vee...umm of course nowhere near as historic or tragic.

I had to leave before the Sadies set, but I heard most of the Kissers.

The guy at the beer tent said everybody was doing an abbreviated set and they tried to get all the bands up on stage before they shut down because of the rain. The Kissers went on about an hour and a half early. The crowd was dedicated.

Yesterday was fantastic. Maybe I'm misremembering but it seemed to me that the saturday afternoon crowd was much larger than the last few. It was mobbed.

Today the crowd was a little thinner. I really have a lot of respect for people who put on stilts and walk around wet, smooth pavement, and dance. Good parade. Too bad about the rain.
